It comes down to this, with the new 40-second clock there is a premium on controlling games and the best way to do that is to either be effective running the football or by scoring in bunches. If you can do both that is double trouble and the Cowboys can do both.
A&M has not been able to do either. For that score to be way off would mean each of the teams would have to do an about face from the way they have played in the first four games.
